Tell Your Friends

John 12

John 12:13, (They) took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: "Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! The King of Israel!" John 12:17-19, Therefore the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of his tomb and raised him from the dead, bore witness. For this reason the people also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign. The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, "You see that you are accomplishing nothing. Look, the world has gone after Him!"

People are simply drawn to the LORD. In John 12:13-17, we see an excited crowd welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem. They literally ran toward Him shouting, "Save!" They were crying for salvation, while at the same time screaming a declaration of praise. Why? The word had spread. Only a short time before, Jesus had performed a miraculous work. He had raised His friend Lazarus from the dead. The crowd who actually witnessed this miracle could not stay quiet. They had to tell their friends, who told their friends, and so on and so forth.

The city of Jerusalem was brimming with people who had heard the good news and received it well. They wanted to be where Jesus was; see what He could do. Can you remember being on that receiving end? Do you remember what it felt like to be invited by a friend to church for the very first time? Do you remember the sheer electricity that went through your body when you accepted Christ? Do you remember what it felt like when you first heard the LORD's voice or, what about when He last poured an incomprehensible amount of blessings upon your life? Could you not help but tell someone?

Let yourself be challenged in the coming week to rekindle that feeling of excitement if you have lost it. If you are a Christ-follower, then you have a miraculous story to tell; a story about the love and wonder of our LORD that others are dying to hear.

Current Series

      These days, it's normal to deal with financial debt, high divorce rates, and bad relationships. Maybe it's time to shake things up. Join us as we explore life beyond normal in our series, WEIRD. The messages are entitled: Weird In A 'God' Way, Weird Is Better, Weird Desires, Weird View of Money, Weird Way To Save The World.

      Yesterday we talked about a Weird View of Money. The core issue to our financial difficulties is ourselves. Personal finance is 80% behavior and 20% head knowledge about money. This message contains 5 principles from Scripture concerning our personal finances.
      This message is (or soon will be) available on our website, just under the calendar, or you can visit us on iTunes. You can also listen to previous messages.

Next Week:
      We will finish up our series on Weird with the topic of a Weird Way to Save the World next week.
